Abbey Brumfiel, a Chandler High Softball player, participated in “Shop with a Jock” in December. This community service project arranges for high school student-athletes to volunteer their time and money to go shopping with a child in need during the holiday season. Abbey and her 3rd grade buddy spent the day getting to know one another while they shopped for items to purchase for her family. Once finished, Abbey helped the young girl wrap the gifts to place under her family tree.
